Mulqi, Chinese Communist Party official talk cooperation

Amman, June 13 (Petra) -The Senate’s Committee for Arab, International and Expatriate Affairs, headed by Dr. Hani Mulqi, on Thursday discussed with the Deputy Director General of the International Department of Chinese Communist Party, Yu Wei, and the accompanying delegation, ways to enhance bilateral parliamentary cooperation.

During the meeting, Mulqi praised the “distinguished” level of bilateral relations, which are “historic” and built on mutual respect, adding that their foundations were laid by the two countries’ wise leaderships.

Mulqi also noted the importance of improving Jordanian-Chinese relations, especially raising the volume of trade exchange and enhancing cooperation in the economic, investment, cultural, parliamentary and health fields.

Mulqi stressed the need to support the Palestinian people to achieve their legitimate rights, primarily the right to establish their independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital, as the only way to achieve comprehensive and just peace in the region.

Jordan, he said, received “large” numbers of refugees on its soil and provided housing, health and education services for them, stressing the need to support the Kingdom to continue assuming this role.

For his part, the Chinese official said his country is looking forward to strengthening relations and partnerships with Jordan, especially in the economic, investment, tourism, cultural and energy fields, and seeking to increase volume of trade exchange.

The official lauded His Majesty King Abdullah II’s positions towards the Palestinian cause and the Israeli war on Gaza, noting the two countries’ “similar” positions on various international issues of common concern.
